The South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division continues to investigate the death of a Union County Sheriff's Office employee.

Authorities called SLED to assist in the investigation after the body of Kimberly Riddle Bailey was discovered at her home on Glendale Road Tuesday afternoon.  SLED, which is now leading the investigation, has not released details on how Riddle died.

Sheriff David Taylor said Bailey had been an employee of the Sheriff's Office since he was elected in 2009.

"It's like the loss of a family member," Taylor said Thursday.

Taylor said Bailey was put on administrative leave pending the outcome of a SLED investigation into the Union County Sheriff's Office.

Bailey was laid to rest on Friday after a service at Bogansville United Methodist Church. She is survived by a husband and three children.
